DRIVE TO GOLDEN HORN BY BUS
The Golden Horn, an 8 km long inlet that separates the European shore, has played a significant role in Istanbul’s development. Being a naturally secure harbor, it is widest at the entrance from the Bosphorus. At its far end, two streams drain into it.

BOAT TRIP ON THE BOSPHORUS
This stunning cruise travels along the Bosphorus, between Europe and Asia. The journey takes passengers past the Dolmabahce and Beylerbeyi Palaces, charming wooden villas and mansions, and culminates at the majestic Rumeli Fortress.
Istanbul had endured numerous sieges prior to its conquest by Fatih Sultan Mehmed the Conqueror in 1453. Thanks to the Byzantine city walls, it was able to successfully resist these invasions. This visit to Rumeli Fortress only includes views from the sea without an interior tour.
